Apart from the privacy issues, the problem players have encountered with this system is that conduct that takes place within a private or somewhat private server – say a server that includes a close group of friends and perhaps a few others – could be subject to reporting and ensuing sanctions even when it comes to inside jokes and related communications. Overall, gamers opposed to this system have expressed displeasure that Microsoft and Mojang are involved in moderating presumably private servers.
